The three stripes isn’t rocking with Cheeto Jesus. adidas is the latest brand to publicly denounce Donald Trump’s travel ban on immigrants from seven countries with Muslim majorities.
adidas sent a company-wide email making their stance clear, and followed it with an official press statement.
“Our company is built on the core belief that ‘Through sport, we have the power to change lives.’ Sport has shown in the past and will show over and over again in the future that it can bring people together from all over the world—regardless of their nationality, gender, age, religion or sexual orientation,’ said Adidas pres reps Lauren Lamkin on Monday, per Sole Collector.
The statement continues. “We at Adidas are proud to bring this positive power of sport to life every day at work and we cherish the diverse, international workforce we have around the globe. Some companies have already voiced their concerns about this decision and we join them in their call for an open and diverse society and culture in the U.S. and around the globe. It goes without saying that our commitment to the U.S. market and our people in America remains unchanged despite this current political climate.”
Nike also denounced President Trump’s executive order recently with a statement from its CEO Mark Parker.
Continue to rock your adidas with respect, #fortheculture.
